Adelobasileus

Fast Facts 

Type: Chordata
Diet: Insectivore.
Size: Uncertain due to lack of remains,‭ ‬Skull length about‭ ‬17‭ ‬millimetres.
Protection status: Extinct
 A rather small and unassuming little creature,‭ ‬Adelobasileus is an evolutionary giant because it helps to bridge the gap between cyonodonts and later primitive mammal forms of the Triassic.‭ ‬At the time of its description,‭ ‬it was the earliest known proto-mammal.‭ ‬Because of its small size,‭ ‬Adelobasileus was probably an insectivore in its behaviour,‭ ‬but one that needed to keep out of sight of early dinosaurs such as Coelophysis.
